Here are some answers to questions you might be asking yourself
Why should I computerize my books?
There are many reasons to computerize your books. One is organization. Having all your bills, deposits, checking accounts all in one place. Another reason is to have numbers at your finger tips, income, expenses, cash balances, etc. A computerized system can be setup to reconcile your bank accounts anytime you wish (no having to wait until statements are reconciled). It will help to minimize the time necessary for your Accountant/CPA to prepare your taxes. Should you ever be audited by the IRS, having a complete organized system will definitely make the process easier.
Can’t I just have my Accountant/ CPA do my bookkeeping for me?
Most accountants are not staffed to provide day-to-day bookkeeping services for their clients. Many accountants/CPA’s would refer you out to someone like us for bookkeeping services. It is usually less expensive to have a bookkeeper provide these services than your accountant/CPA.

What is a digital filing system and how can it help my business?
